Ureaplasma urealyticum

RANK: Species

TAXONOMY: Terrabacteria group -> Tenericutes -> Mollicutes -> Mycoplasmatales -> Mycoplasmataceae -> Ureaplasma -> Ureaplasma urealyticum

OVERVIEW:

The six recognised Ureaplasma species have a GC content of 2 7–30%, and a genome size ranging from 0.76 to 1.17 Mbase pairs, and cholesterol is required for growth. A defining characteristic of the genus is that they perform urea hydrolysis. Some strains originally classified as U. urealyticum should be treated as a new species, U. parvum.

This species has been identified as a resident in the human gastrointestinal tract based on the phylogenetic framework of its small subunit ribosomal RNA gene sequences.[PMC 4262072]

COGEM
COGEM released a comprehensive database of pathogenicity assessment of around 2575 bacterial species in 2011. The database ranks the pathogenicity of species on a scale of 1 to 4. Ureaplasma urealyticum ranks 2 on this scale: Species that can cause diseases in humans or animals, which are unlikely to spread in the human population and for which an adequate prophylaxis or therapy exists
